1.3 Create illustrations using illustration software tools to the required standard

Unit 4IT04: Computer Graphics Editing and Database Concepts

Unit code: D/617/6695 RQF

Level: 4

Unit Aims

This unit aims to explain the concepts of photo editing. This will enable learners to insert photos into documents such as user manuals and the IT structure of an organization. The photos may need to be touched up before they are ready for use. This mainly involves using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator for photo/image editing and designing. The unit delivers skills in photo retouching and digital drawing to address the issues of digital image design. It emphasizes exploration, techniques, media, ideas development and production techniques.

This unit also provides the fundamental concepts of a database system through Database Management System (DBMS), relational databases, entity relationship modelling and normalization. Learners are also required to create database systems using the database language of Structured Query Language (SQL).
